Dr. Bott's stackAmini for Mac mini
Wednesday, April 8, 2009
Posted by: Brian

It seems like every once in a while a neat little product slips through the cracks. That's why I decided to bring some attention to the stackAmini from Dr. Bott. The stackAmini is a little plastic gadget that allows you to stack and hold multiple Mac minis in place. I haven't seen one in person, but it also looks to provide a little breathing room between the two units. So this could also come in handy for stacking your Mac mini with a NewerTech miniStack or AirPort Extreme Base Station where the transfer of heat might be a concern. The stackAmini should also keep them neatly aligned, at least in the case of the AirPort Extreme Base Station. As many of you know, the top of the miniStack has a raised lip to help hold the Mac mini in place.

Anyways, I just thought it was worth a mention. The stackAmini from Dr. Bott is available now and priced at $14.99.

a cheap *** ******* because I got a package of eight round adhesive felt pads for $2.50. Stuck two together to make four legs under the mini. It has been running cool ever since.

I thought the exact same thing. Laughing

It's kind of a neat idea though. It almost reminds me of that Lacie mini drive that held up the Mac mini. It's a shame Lacie doesn't make that model anymore. I almost think they should bring it back for the new Mac minis with Firewire 800. I bet it would sell well.

I used the lid from a plastic yogurt container as a riser under my Mini, and it worked great.

Not sure why one would want two Minis, and stacked right on top of each other at that.

I could see this being used in a data center or similar environment with multiple Minis stacked allowing for more vent to the machines.
